What I do with my life, with my time here, really matters. Life is a precious opportunity and the only thing we take with us when we leave is our Spiritual growth.
Some people experience having too much to do in a day – the day isn’t long enough. Others would say that they have nothing to get up for. We can change these experiences and live a full, ordered and meaningful life.
Just as the Universe is based on order and rhythm – which we rely on – so we need to have order in the way we live our life. Structure, Order, Rhythm, Discipline – these are essential to life. Without these we just drift along, often experiencing overwhelm and wasting a lot of time.
When we work to develop these qualities we use time efficiently, we become much more organised and so we have more time available to us.
Discipline is a word many don’t like and many would say they are not the discipline type. But discipline is something you build, you develop, and it’s essential to progressing and growing. We need it and we all have the ability to develop it.
Discipline is ordered activity – it’s you choosing to set up order and routines in your life so that you have a sense of the overall structure of your day. People can see routine as boring but routine means you fit in so much more and experience a lot more efficiency. You don’t waste time over and over as a result of forgetting, or losing stuff or your energy being scattered. Living your day – structure, order, rhythm
Every day we need time to be still and to connect with our Soul, with Spirit in meditation. Every day we need time to journal so that we understand more and can use our minds to manage our emotions [rather than be run by them] and to resolve issues. Every day we need time to focus on lofty, uplifting, inspiring thoughts and ideas. These need to be the foundation of our day, our sustenance giving us the focus we need to live our day and keep growing in love.
These need to be part of our daily structure and will make all the difference. It can seem at first like an impossibility to fit all of this in but if you realise its importance and are prepared to schedule these in [giving yourself time to work out a routine and yet also being firm], you will do it.
